It isn't letting me transfer files that are larger than 5 gigs to my WD external HD. Says not enough space. How do I make it so I can transfer them?

Check to see what file structure the drive is formatted as. It's possible that it's formatted as FAT32 instead of NTFS. If that's the case, backup your data from the drive, reformat, and then you can transfer the data back to the drive.

The computer still indicates low disk space and has not recognized theMY Book as additional **** space

Does it see your external hard drive at all? If so I hope you have like a 500 gb and transfer all your pics, vids and other data files over to your external to free up space on you computer hard drive.

Hard drive

Could you be more specific? Do you mean you had 28 gigs on your hard drive used up, but the backup only copied 7.5 gigs? The message you left is pretty sparse.
